More than £3,000 was raised in support of Somerset Wildlife Trust at a Plant Sale and Open Garden held at Rookery House, in Mark, on April 30.
Over 300 people visited the garden of long standing Somerset Wildlife Trust members Anne and Norman Lees for the annual fundraiser. Anne and Norman have been members of the Trust for over 40 years and during their 20 years at Rookery House they have transformed the garden into a wildlife haven.
Norman, secretary to the board of trustees for Somerset Wildlife Trust said:” We are extremely grateful for the support that was given to raise a record breaking sum that will be used to protect Somerset’s wildlife for the future.”
The event was organised by the Mendip Hills Area Group and supported by Polden Area Group, the Sedgemoor Conservation Volunteers, the Chancellor's Farm Watch Group and the Botany Group.
